Fifties Television: An episode called "Dreams" of the unpopular yet popular 1950's sitcom "I Married Joan". Starring Joan Davis & Jim Backus. This episode may be missing a few minutes, but is completely watchable. In this episode, Joan wonders what might of happened if she never got married. The fantasy sequences are fantastic.

I wouldn't say I Married Joan was "unpopular"...
Since I Married Joan ran for a number of years and filmed over 90 shows, I wouldn't say it was "unpopular". Ratings hit? No but it had to have at least some success to had so many episodes filmed in the first place. Kinda reminds me of a remark I have seen elsewhere onhere about The Flintstones being "unpopular" and a "flop". If The Flintstones was so unpopular I wish someone would explain to me why do we still see Fruity Pebbles ceral at the local supermarkets? Vitamins bearing the Flintstones and until recently some amusement parks featuring The Flintstones on rides and such? Doesn't sound like a flop to me.

I've Seen This Show in Reruns
This was an ahead of its time episode -- taking the 50's standard of housewife and putting up the idea of the woman in the business world.
Of course, in today's society, women can do both...
